Police Investigate Fargo Reporter After Hidden Camera Story About School Security

Police from two separate cities are investigating KVLY-KXJB reporter Mellaney Moore after the station aired her hidden camera story about local school security.

According to Moore’s story, she entered three schools, one in West Fargo, one in Fargo and one in Moorhead, MN, to test school security. “She had a hidden camera and was not stopped by any school official.”

The Forum of Fargo-Moorhead reports police in Moorhead, MN, and West Fargo are now looking into whether she should face charges. “The concern we had was that they were specifically doing something that wasn’t lawful,” Moorhead police Lt. Tory Jacobson told The Forum.

>UPDATE: KVLY-KXJB news director Ike Walker told TVSpy his station has not been contacted by West Fargo police yet, but the station intends to reach out to them today. He also said he thinks the investigations are “a sideshow” to hide the real problem of lax security in area schools and the station intends to aggressively fight any charges that may result from the investigations.
